A little more than five years ago, the College of Engineering introduced Vision 2000, a nine-point strategic plan to prepare for the new millennium. Our alumni joined forces to champion this $100 million plan to erect new buildings, provide scholarship opportunities, endow professorships and diversify the student body. On behalf of the College of Engineering, thank you for your generosity and support during the Vision 2000 fund drive, which concluded on Dec. 31, 2000. As a result of your dedication to our college, you helped us raise $106,582,041 in gift support.

It has been a privilege for Carrie McGinley, Deb Holt and me to be involved in this successful fund-raising effort, and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of our alumni, industry and friends, who enabled us to achieve such a tremendous accomplishment.

Our active and supportive alumni and friends have brought us close to reaching another of our goals: completing funding for the college's portion of the Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowships. These fellowships will help the University of Wisconsin-Madison gain a significant advantage in the intense competition for the nation's best and brightest graduate students.

At the time I write this letter, only one fellowship remains to be funded in the College of Engineering: A gift of $250,000, coupled with matching funds from the university, will complete the project.

We will continue to raise funds for the Mechanical Engineering Building renovation and expansion. A three-story building with an additional 35,000 assignable square feet will provide crucial education and research facilities, enhancing the college's ability to attract top faculty and students.

Our students will also benefit from the new John & Jean Berndt Technology Enhanced Learning Fund for the purpose of developing courses and curricula in technology enhanced learning. Additionally, ongoing efforts to support the college's Diversity Affairs Program are enhancing recruiting and retention of more women and underrepresented students of color.

Please join us as we celebrate the success of VISION 2000 and make plans to visit the campus, surf the college website and see firsthand the impact that you have made on the college, students and faculty.

Regards,
